An Official New York City Landmark

On July 31, 2018, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission designated 550 Madison as an individual landmark. The ownership of 550 Madison commented on this development as follows:

“We are proud that 550 Madison is now an official New York City landmark, claiming its place in our city’s architectural heritage. As owners we strongly support designation of the iconic office tower and applaud the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s decision. Since acquiring the property, we have taken our role as stewards of this important building very seriously. We look forward to an ongoing dialogue with the LPC and other stakeholders to preserve 550 Madison’s legacy as a commercial Class A destination in East Midtown, with smart and sensitive modifications to serve modern tenants and the community at large.”
